COMMUNITY TIES: A CELEBRATION OF OUR DEDICATED OSA COMMUNITY MEMBERS | MAY 5 – 25
Online viewing: May 6 – July 6, 2022
          

For almost one hundred years, Oregon Society of Artists has thrived as a place for artists to come together. It serves as a hub for the exchange of ideas, the development of skills, and the celebration of art and culture. Community Ties honors the people who make OSA–the volunteers, instructors, and students who bring their creativity and passion to our community week after week! Because of your contributions, the true spirit of collaboration and curiosity on which OSA was founded is as alive today as it was in 1926.


The Gallery is free and open to the public.   
There is free onsite parking with an ADA approved parking space. TriMet bus #51 and #63 both stop in front of OSA.

Gallery Hours:   Monday through Friday: 10am - 4pm and Saturday 1pm - 4pm.  Masks are optional. 
You may also visit online at OSAGallery.org.

PAINTING WITH LIGHT: A PHOTOGRAPHY SHOWCASE  | Juried by Janis Miglavs | Online through June 2.

       

Partnering with light and a camera, photographers remake the world through images. Each photograph is a time machine, transporting the viewer to a particular time, place, and perspective. From black and white, to pinhole, large format and digital, we want to see the world through your camera lens! To create a compelling image, the photographer must consider light, composition, contrast, framing, subject, and psyche. What is revealed in the photograph, however, is always a surprise. Subject and photographer are equally unmasked within the camera’s gaze. Celebrating the image in all of its forms, Painting With Light aims to showcase the artistry, depth, and profundity of the photographic medium.
